Our most popular course gives students a solid footing in photography and teaches you how to become master of your camera, whether you’re using compact or digital SLR.

It’s fun, practical and covers all the basics. From photographing friends to creating eye-catchy compositions this course will provide you with the basic skills to make your photography stand out from the rest.

Teens will learn how to:

  • use different camera settings for creative effect
  • set a correct exposure in different modes and various situations
  • create strong images and unusual pictures

What students are saying:
“I wish I could do this course every day!”
NA, 13 years old

“I have continued to the advanced course right after the introductory course because I enjoyed it so much! The course was wonderful, Julia was so professional and nice. She taught us so many tricks and tools to become more creative. I especially liked our days outside the Lab, photographing in the streets and looking for creative angles and perspectives.”
